THE dead have slammed dishonest psychics for deliberately misinterpreting their vengeful, hate-filled messages.

Psychics like Sally Morgan are either protecting our feelings or not psychic
New psychic research by Roehampton University found that 96% of spirits contacting living relatives basically just want to say all the malicious things they couldn't have gotten away with while actually in a room.

Professor Helen Archer said: "Ghosts have told us that the biggest plus point of being dead is that you are free to speak your mind. You don't have a physical, punchable body plus everyone takes you much more seriously.

This is great

If I ever wind up as a ghost, I would haunt people just to **** with them. I mean you've got to have something to do for fun in all eternity.

Perhaps. But I would have thought that once you cross the rainbow bridge you would reach a feeling of Nirvana and not give a crap about anything that happened on earth. "The school bully? An awesome guy. Cant wait to see him again!"

I know it's satire, but I didn't believe they were talking about an actual person. Then, I looked up Sally Morgan. What a crackpot.

Does that mean you wish to be an incubus or succubus in the afterlife?

What makes you think it's satire? Sounds on the level to me.

Sometimes I feeling like I want to send abusive messages to psychics for exploiting the emotionally vulnerable. Wankers.

I'm sure if that option was presented to me I'd seriously consider it.

I know far too many people that are entirely too easily convinced by the never ending gaggle of "psychics" on TV using cold readings, planted actors and every old trick in the book that even a novice scholar of stage magic can see right through.

So while I find this thread hilarious, the comedy is derived from the contrast with the sad fact that so many people are preyed on by charlatans peddling false hope.

Hope can only be false if you assume hope itself isn't the point.

Humans suffer from an unfortunate condition in which our finite lives are driven by infinite aspirations. We don't simply achieve something and die like a moth that has mated and laid eggs. We keep going until we are killed or wear out and break down, and our instincts reflect that. The really miserable part is, we know we're going to die. We're smart enough to realize that the end we strive to escape is inevitable, but we retain the desire to go on, because we need it to survive at all. Faced with the desire to overcome reality itself, it's little wonder people are "too easily" convinced by the idea that others have done it successfully.
